Weave a Rush Garlic Bag
This handy little hanging rush container is woven from the wonderfully supple Common Bulrush, (Scirpus Lacustris), collected from the river Thames. This little bag is great for holding Garlic in (hense the name), but you can of course keep what ever you like in it! Specially designed by Rachel as a introductory project to working in Rush, we will cover several techniques during the day.
